The core of these systems is an amazingly effective small filter the size of a carry-on suitcase and constructed so that one can pour dirty, foul- smelling, and bacteria ridden water in at the top and clean, odorless and healthy water comes out at the bottom. This filter uses no chemical ingredients, only minimal amounts of electricity, and has won the prestigious Wuppertal award.
The filters could be adapted to local circumstances and the manufacturing of the accessory components (pumps, pipes, valves, connectors etc.) in the local sites would begin. As soon as feasible the actual filters (the core unit of the systems) would be manufactured in a small shop on one of the sites. There would be multiple immediate local uses: most obviously for the watering of the gardens, but also for the recycling of bathing, washing, and toilet water. In manys cases the same water could be recycled up to ten times. The dissemination of these water filters would have an enormous impact on the general social well-being and most especially on the health of countless communities in which water is scarce. This means that the financial potential of a rapidly expanding water filter manufacturing operation might be very impressive indeed.
